Highly flexible POS solution for the food and drug industry
NCR brings its proven POS and store management solution StorePro to independent retailers in Europe
NCR will launch NCR StorePro in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
StorePro, NCR’s newest point-of-sale (POS) solution, is aimed specifically at the independent retailer with less than 250 stores and will integrate seamlessly with NCR Retail ONE, enabling retailers to transition to an omni-commerce strategy at their own pace while protecting existing investments. Furthermore, StorePro is the first retail POS software solution that is aimed exclusively for distribution through channel partners in Europe.
According to a recent survey by EHI, the scientific institute for the German retail industry, 47 percent of retailers in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) are planning POS software decisions in the next two years. These are mainly driven by growing omni-channel needs that call for more flexible POS solutions.
NCR addresses this need with its NCR StorePro, a highly flexible solution that can be configured quickly and easily to the specific needs of a retailer and their individual stores thanks to thousands of parameters, reducing implementation time and costs. The connectivity with NCR Retail ONE supports multiple NCR and third-party applications and opens up an omni-commerce experience not typically available to this market.
NCR Retail ONE is an innovative commerce hub that unites an open ecosystem of retail applications and data with an omni-channel software platform to help provide frictionless shopping experiences for consumers. NCR Retail ONE allows retailers to mix and match innovative applications from NCR, its partners and third parties. With this new strategy, NCR is also opening up its distribution channels. NCR StorePro is the first retail POS software that will be available to retailers only through channel partners in EMEA, as NCR is expanding its network of software channel partners throughout the region.
“The launch of NCR StorePro in EMEA is proof of our continued investment and commitment to the small and medium retailer and to our partners that serve this growing segment,” said Wolfgang Jonasson, vice president EMEA at NCR Retail Solutions. “Because StorePro is purpose-built for those store chains in grocery and convenience with an average of 100-250 stores, we are able to offer a solution that delivers the robustness they want with the scalability they need to better compete in today’s market. We are actively looking for new channel partners that want to grow with us in this market segment.”
NCR StorePro is a proven solution that has been installed in 25,000 sites around the world. It is a robust and highly functional solution that leverages the latest retail technologies and comes with a refreshed user interface that speeds up training time. Daily backups and automated data synchronization ensure quick recovery, while a line independent architecture ensures full capability even while offline to the server. The use of industry standards such as Windows and SQL make it a powerful solution that requires minimal internal IT support while keeping the store up and running 100 percent of the time.
